Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The basic philosophy at the Wooden Shoe is that our school provides a "child - centered" environment where the students are encouraged to participate in the selection of various play activities designed to meet their needs and interests at each age level. Social interaction and autonomy is encouraged while important concepts are learned through "hands-on" experiences. Our overall educational objective is to provide a positive self-concept through success-oriented program activities.
